One of the most important aspects of creating a trust is selecting the right trustee. A trustee is responsible for ensuring that your investments, assets, and financial affairs are handled in accordance with your wishes. A trustee also has fiduciary responsibilities to a trust's beneficiaries for both asset protection and management, and must keep extensive records of all financial activities related to the trust. Moreover, trusts can be complicated and time-consuming to manage. An institution with professional trust administrators, such as Saturna, can greatly assist with the management of your trust during your lifetime and at death.
